Hi everyone, brand new here and wondering if you could help settle a discussion myself and a friend had recently regarding probablity while playing roullette!
We had both been playing the game in a local casino for a while, and I had covered my chosen number of 17 for most of the afternoon that we were in there, it failed to come up at all! My friend then stated, 'it has to come eventually' and I disagreed by stating that the wheel could spin for the rest of time, for infinity and it doesnt 'have to come at all'. To which my friend stated, 'but if that happened it would definatly come' my reply being 'yes, it would probably come billions of times in infinity, but mathamatically it doesnt have to come at all!' Could you tell me which one of us is correct?
Thanks for reading!
